Holland America Line Deploys 2 Ships To Asia for 2013-14 Season

Holland America Line will position ms Volendam and ms Rotterdam in Asia for the 2013-14 season, increasing capacity and adding more robust itineraries in the popular region. New expanded Singapore sailings make it easier to sail round-trip from the bustling port and experience exotic calls at destinations like Myanmar and India.

The diverse 14-day itineraries and longer Collectors’ Voyages — that combine back-to-back itineraries into longer cruises — also feature extended and overnight stays at some of Asia’s most iconic cities and provide travelers with ample time to explore the region’s diverse historical and notable landmarks. Two extensive 51- and 53-day Collectors’ Voyages in January and March, respectively, provide comprehensive explorations of the region with visits to Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia while sailing from and to Europe.

“Asia continues to flourish as a popular cruise destination, so the timing is right to increase our capacity in the region and provide our guests with a variety of exciting travel options to this magical area of the world,” said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs for Holland America Line. “The enhanced itineraries offer guests an opportunity to take in the rich Asian culture and even go inland to see some of the most well-known sites.”
